    Long shot…but if anyone knows a parishioner who entered the OFM Conv seminary for Brothers at Watertown NY in 1957, I’d love to get in touch. He’d be about 76, from Hoboken.

    I am looking for the orphanage where I believe my father to have been with the same name and location. His DOB: 5/3/1911. I believe he was in the St. Joseph’s Orphanage in Hoboken, NJ and perhaps with one or two brothers. I do have a record of birth for my aunt born at St. Joseph’s in 1913. Can you point me in the right direction as I have not been able to determine where this institution is in Hoboken, NJ since my searches take me to this Parish. Also, where do I write for any records and/or pictures of the institution in the period from 1912 – 1927 or thereabouts. Would there be pictures of the students? Any help is greatly appreciated. Respectfully, Jamie P. Shanahan
